Reims Cathedral


Reims Cathedral
Reims Cathedral, Notre-Dame de Reims (Our Lady of Reims), is by far the most famous building in Reims.
  • The cathedral was constructed between 1211 and 1275. It was built on a site of an older church which had been destroyed by fire in 1211.

  • Both the previous church and the present Cathedral were built on the site where Clovis I (the first King of the Franks to unite all the Frankish tribes) was baptized by Saint Remigius (also known as Saint Remy or Saint Remi), bishop of Reims, in 496.

  • Reims is the traditional location where Kings of France were crowned. In other words, Reims Cathedral traditionally served a role similar to that of Westminster Abbey in the United Kingdom.

  • Reims Cathedral is today a major tourist attraction and receives approximately 1 million visitors each year.

Through a comparative analysis of the cathedrals of Chartres, Reims, and Amiens, the author illuminates the technical, theological, artistic, and social factors that formed the High Gothic synthesis.

Product Description:

Dubbed the Cathedral of France and first church of French Christendom, the Gothic cathedral of Reims was the coronation site of more than two dozen French kings—and a target of German bombardment in World War I. Before 1914 its medieval stained glass had enjoyed the fame of Chartres and Bourges. The first extensive study focusing on the stained glass of this preeminent cathedral, The Gothic Stained Glass of Reims Cathedral offers a groundbreaking analysis of its glazing program. Through unique insights into the clerical agenda and its influence over a building devoted to the coronation of the French monarchy, Lillich considers the stained glass in the context of building chronology, political events, and artistic movements to present a completely new understanding of the stained glass of Reims.

Product Description:
This book was originally published prior to 1923, and represents a reproduction of an important historical work, maintaining the same format as the original work. While some publishers have opted to apply OCR (optical character recognition) technology to the process, we believe this leads to sub-optimal results (frequent typographical errors, strange characters and confusing formatting) and does not adequately preserve the historical character of the original artifact. We believe this work is culturally important in its original archival form. While we strive to adequately clean and digitally enhance the original work, there are occasionally instances where imperfections such as blurred or missing pages, poor pictures or errant marks may have been introduced due to either the quality of the original work or the scanning process itself. Despite these occasional imperfections, we have brought it back into print as part of our ongoing global book preservation commitment, providing customers with access to the best possible historical reprints. We appreciate your understanding of these occasional imperfections, and sincerely hope you enjoy seeing the book in a format as close as possible to that intended by the original publisher.
